New Music From Metal Blade Records Artists Nothgard, The Ocean Collective and Mother Feather
We have a trio of new releases arriving over the course of the next couple weeks from Metal Blade Records artists Nothgard, The Ocean and Mother Feather. Nothgard's new album titled "Malady X" will arrive before the end of the month and features an epic, heavy metal sound spread across 11-tracks. The album begins with the Norse-like introduction of "Voyage Of Decay," before blasting off with the intense delivery of the title song "Malady X." Next, the band speeds up the pace even more with the high-powered attack of "Shades Of War" and "Epitaph," before the slower, progressive metal appeal of "Deamonium I." Nothgard come roaring back with the guitar frenzy of "Serpent Hallow" and the thunderous rhythm of "Fall Of An Empire," before closing with the grand instrumental "Black Horizon."

Next, we have the experimental German progressive metal band, The Ocean Collective, with their latest release "Phanerozoic I: Palaeozoic" arriving at the beginning of November. It features seven tracks that showcases the band's exceptional musicianship as they take songs like "Silurian: Age Of Sea Scorpions" and "Devonian: Nascent" past the 9-minute mark. The band flex their metal muscle on the shorter tracks like "Ordovicium: The Glaciation of Gondwana" and "The Carboniferous Rainforest Collapse."

Arriving the same day is the full-length sophomore effort from New York City rockers, Mother Feather. Their new album titled "Constellation Baby" features ten tracks that re-establishes the band as a rising force in hard rock music. Their new album kicks off with the addictive groove of "Red Hot Metal" and the pounding rhythm of "Man, I Wish You Were Here." Their songs are short and to the point as they waste no time with filler. The rawness of "Snakebite" and "Totally Awesome" have a great mainstream alternative/rock sound. Mother Feather wrap up their new release with the buzz of "Shake Your Magic 8 Ball" and the slow build-up of the album closer "I Blow A Kiss."
